"Thanks to the amazing first responders, and medical teams at University and Children's Hospital in New Orleans, LA, we are headed home with our baby girl as she continues to recover," Jamie wrote. "Above all else, we are so thankful for each and every prayer, because we know that is what truly made the difference. Thank you again to everyone. We are truly blessed.🙏"
On February 5, Maddie was driving her ATV when she took a hard right to avoid running into a nearby drainage ditch, causing the vehicle to "enter the pond" on her mom and stepfather's property, a police report said.
"The ATV and child were instantly submerged in the water right before [her parents'] eyes," it stated. "Within seconds, the child's mother, stepfather and other family members reached the pond, dove in and attempted to rescue the child to no avail. The child was trapped and secured by the seatbelt and the ATV's safety netting."
She was freed after two minutes underwater.
The family pleaded for prayers and well wishes on social media as Maddie laid unconscious for two days. As Maddie recovered, Jamie shared an image that said, "Believe in miracles."
"Thank you to everyone for the prayers. Maddie is doing better and better. Thank y'all so much," he said.
Today, Britney Spears, Maddie's aunt, wrote on Instagram: "So grateful that Maddie was able to go home today ... it's truly a miracle. Our prayers were heard, and they were answered! Thank you so much for all of your love and support this week. My family appreciates it more than you will ever know."
